Understanding TBI

Traumatic brain injury (or TBI) occurs when a person’s head comes into contact with a significant force, causing a number of serious complications or, in extreme cases, death. Although virtually anything can cause TBI, the most common causes are car wrecks and falling accidents. Victims of TBI may suffer from expensive medical bills and or significant lifestyle changes.

If you or someone you know has incurred a traumatic brain injury because of another party’s negligence or recklessness, they may be liable for your damages.

Symptoms

If you have sustained a head injury and are currently experiencing one or more of the following symptoms, you may be suffering from TBI:

  • Chronic headaches
  • Nausea
  • Vomiting
  • Seizures/convulsions
  • Insomnia
  • Slurred speech
  • Memory loss
  • Depleted coordination or motor skills
  • Persistent pupil dilation in one or both eyes

Treatment of traumatic brain injuries varies depending on the circumstances of the accident. If you believe that another party’s behavior is responsible for your injury, your case should be investigated for liability.
